    Be careful about the wood used it must be certified to have been treated and is bug free. Best port for you in Orlando is Miami or actually fort lauderdale. Go get you best rate then PM me.

    I've got some stuff coming over soon and I was warned about the type of wood used. This requirement is no surprise with the way Australia is. Hell we can't even take fruit through state lines and they sometimes enforce with officers pulling people in and checking (is to stop the spread of fruit fly, so for good reason.
    You would think with all the deadly shit we have here we could handle any piss weak shit you could send here .

    All jokes aside it's all for very good reason. Does anybody have any specks on the requirements? What type of treatment etc. is it specific to the timber or can be treated once assembled.

    John,
    What are the specific guidelines for the timber treatment? Can you point us in the right direction?

    It's not just an Australian thing. The timber has to be heat treated or fumigated.

    Treated wood, general pallet type wood is fine as long as it isn't natural untreated raw timber they wouldn't give you an issue, alternatively Yamaha crates are the best as they are not made of timber.
